History of the Dutch Bike Shop.
1n 2004, we opened the first bricks and mortar dedicated Dutch bike in the UK. At the time, we struggled to find any bike shop that sold comfortable bicycles that we’re either mountain bikes or road bikes, so opened the Dutch bike shop.
Since opening, we’ve quite literally sold and serviced thousands of Dutch bikes for customers all over the Britain
Our business ethos is simply – quality. We strive to provide our customers with quality Dutch bikes backed up with a quality after-sales service and our unique home delivery service for those customers who can’t come and collect their new bikes.
We’re not in the mass, stack ’em high, sell ’em cheap bicycle business and neither do we ever plan to. We do not ship bikes in cardboard boxes owing to the problems with transport damage and the difficulties in bike assembly.
We look after our customers – you are, our number one priority.
Unlike other internet sellers who simply sell you a bike in a box, which you will usually have to assemble yourself, we go to enormous lengths to ensure that the Dutch bike or any bike you buy from our store is fully set up, test-ridden and any problems ironed out, prior to us handing it over to you.
Without exception, and regardless of manufacturer, every bike that we have ever taken delivery of in our business requires setting up – whether this be truing wheels, setting and adjusting gears or brakes, pre-delivery work is required.
Please remember this if you’re considering having a bike in a box delivered. The vast majority of customers we’ve come across who’ve ordered bikes in boxes will usually end up at their local bike shop getting problems sorted out.
Our Home Delivery Service.
With our home delivery service, we deliver your new bike to your home address all ready for you ride away and enjoy. No unpacking, putting together, fixing, pulling or frustrations with courier/transport damage.
We are a small business and our two directors work in the business, every day. When you phone or email us, you’re usually talking to one of us – Paul or Brian. We care passionately that when you spend your hard earned money in our business, you’ll be looked after and will enjoy the experience. Which is why so many of our initial customers still come back to us years later to buy their next Batavus Dutch bike or to have their existing Dutch and non-Dutch bikes serviced and repaired in our workshop.
Batavus and Sparta Dutch Bikes
This year – 2018, we’re delighted to add Sparta Dutch Bikes to our collection of quality Dutch bikes. Sparta are a sister company to Batavus with both brands coming under the ACCELL Group of companies, which also now includes Raleigh.
We’ve chosen a number of Sparta models for to you consider – their range is relatively huge, similar to Batavus, so we choose those models that we believe based on our experiences would be most suitable for the UK consumer.
However, we can, subject to it being available at either the Batavus or Sparta factory order in any Dutch bike that you want. So if you see a bike from any of the brands that we sell, that you like the look of, but doesn’t appear on our website, please get in touch and we’ll see if we can get it for you.
